Raleigh latest

Keep up to date with Raleigh news, views and featured stories.

As any former volunteer can tell you, the memories made on a Raleigh Expedition stick with you long after it is over and you’ve taken off your boots.

The memories can be big and small, shared or private, lasting only a second or the culmination of weeks or even months of effort. Show a photo of a tippy-tap or a mess tin to two Raleigh alumni and, even if they volunteered years apart from each other, who knows if they’ll ever finish reminiscing about their memories of Expedition.

Recent news stories regarding the sexual exploitation of vulnerable people by aid workers, who had been trusted to help and protect them, have made for painful reading. These disgraceful actions may have been committed by a few people, but it has rightly sent shockwaves around the development and aid communities. Raleigh International has zero tolerance for any form of harassment or exploitation of any kind against the communities we work with, our partners, staff, or volunteers.
